Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Dr.Phane, is absolutely wonderful.Her bedside manner set her apart from others, because she is knowledgeable and have great skills( no pain when injecting my gums before a filling) but it’s her caring attitude, her ability to listen and the love she has for what she does that gives you, the  patient the best experience possible.Her office at creating smiles is clean, with the latest technology, relaxing atmosphere(music and aromatherapy) they even give you headphones, so you can listen to whatever you want while they do the procedures. The girls at the front desk are great also, cordial, organized  and always with a smile in their faces. I wish I found them sooner because I’m so happy with their care and I highly recommended to anybody, btw they take most insurance and their prices are reasonable.

I was looking for a new dentist and after reading reciews on google Dr Phane at Creating Smiles had the best ones. Their service is awesome and all of the staff is very friendly, honest and professional. Their pricing for their level of quality is fair and they can even work with self pay. I am happy I found a quality dentist I can trust.

We absolutely love Creating Smiles Dental!! We refer all our friends! They are very knowledgeable and always keep our dental health their top priority. As a nurse, I fully trust their expertise with my family and my dental care. My teeth have never been whiter!

JoAnn S. from St. Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Phane and her staff are very caring, gentle, and professional. She was so very patient with me during the whole process…….and this is from someone who is terrified of any kind of dental work. I highly recommend Creating Smiles !!!  Thank you Dr. Phane!

Creating Smiles is the most welcoming dental business I’ve ever been to. They are always upfront and informative about the work I need and every appointment I’ve had with Dr. Phane I’ve felt nothing but trust in her knowledgeable hands. They offer headphones, Netflix movies, chair massages, and other amenities to make sure their clients are comfortable in the stressful situation of having dental work. Thank you guys so much.

I really enjoyed my first visit at Creating Smiles. Dr. Phane and her staff are kind and knowledgeable. They made me feel right at home on my first visit. I look forward to going back. I also drive about 70 miles round trip to visit this location because of their Solea Laser treatment for cavities. Hands down the best cavity treatment I’ve ever had.

I love my dentists here! I have always been very hesitant towards doctors, dental, vision etc. However, everyone here makes me feel at ease and I trust them with the service and information they are providing me. They are super helpful and I actually look forward to my dental appointments and catching up with them!

I was referred to Dr. Phane by a family member. I have always been hesitant to switch dentists as I have a history of dental issues. I have many bridges and crowns so choosing a dentist is very important to me. Dr. Phane and her staff are outstanding! I needed a bridge replaced and two crowns replaced. Because I am missing so many of my teeth, these procedures can be tricky. But Dr. Phane gave me new bridges and crowns in a very timely manner. The best part though is that during all of these appointments she and her staff made sure I never encountered any pain. The entire staff is extremely pleasant, friendly and courteous. This was one of the most positive experiences of my dental life. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Phane and her staff.

Dr. Phane and Creating Smiles has always been there for our family, from dealing with my outrageous dental anxiety to caring for our whole family. When my cleaning came due in the midst of Covid, I wanted to cancel. Dental anxiety and Covid anxiety make for a lovely swirl. But I knew the office has been more than on top of recommendations and safety protocols. So I put on my big girl pants, donned my mask, and headed in for my cleaning. The whole office was full of calming smiles and reassurance. I will never love sitting in the chair, but I’m glad I have somewhere safe with caring practitioners to care for my oral health.

Exceptional! From reception to hygienists to doctors, every staff member is amazing! The office is incredibly clean and welcoming. They are promt with appointment times and never seem stressed and frazzled. If they are, it never shows and they always take their time to ensure the highest quality of treatment. I seldom went to the dentist before Creating Smiles but a tailored treatment plan was created for me with a timeline attached, based on my wants and medical needs and I haven’t missed an appointment since (over 2 years ago)! In fact, I now look forward to going to the dentist. I would give them 10 stars if I could and recommend them to every person I know. You guys are the BEST!!!

I was eagerly in search of a new dentist in the area, under an emergency situation. After being turned down by 4 other dentist offices, who offered appointments 2 1/2 weeks away because their schedules were “too full”, I called Creating Smiles—They were understanding of the urgency of my situation (a crown fell off and my tooth was exposed and painful). They called me back immediately and were kind enough to fit me in to their already busy schedule, the next day. My full experience was flawless from the initial phone call, the warm atmosphere and happy staff, efficient and safe check-in, quick paperwork process and painless reattachment of my crown by a true professional dentist that clearly loves her industry. I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE FOUND THIS PLACE!!! My whole family now has a new forever dentist! Thank you Creating Smiles!!!

My husband and I go to Creating Smiles Dental and we have been very happy. They have provided great service, always kind and helpful. They are fair and really have your best dental health in mind. The cleaning service is wonderful and has many helpful suggestions. I would recommend them!

I am a total dental chicken. I have avoided a visit for years. I finally went, took my whole family, and I’m so glad I did. Everyone on staff is kind, gentle, patient and professional, especially Dr. Phane. She was amazing with our two year old and shepherded me through a long appointment of several fillings. I probably won’t ever look forward to dental visits, but I won’t avoid the dentist anymore. Fellow chickens of the world, this is the place to go!

Highly recommend! I asked my FB friends for a trusty dentist in town and someone suggested Creating Smiles and we were both subsequently rewarded with account credit for a word of mouth recommendation which was a great start! I love this dentist office because it’s female operated and their dental work is amazing. I came to this office with ptsd and a cracked tooth from a prior hack job from another dentist and Creating Smiles did an incredible job on repairing my tooth. It’s been over 1.5 years and the filling is solid. Another time I was sitting in the chair and realized I needed to be to work on 30 mins and once I told them they all flew to my side and work diligently to fill my cavity, clean my teeth and get me to work on time. I am so bummed my insurance isn’t in network anymore, I won’t be able to find another dentist as amazing as Creating Smiles. Go here for all your dental needs! Give them your business!

I was putting off finding a dentist since moving to the area but I found this office and I’m so happy I did! Dr. Phane is amazing, she’s thorough, and puts your mind at ease because going to the dentist is never a favorite thing of mine! Daymar is great also! I love chatting with her!

Cynthia Lucas (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Phane is the best dentist I’ve ever been to. So thorough and so gentle…her chairside manner is the BEST. She and her assistant make you feel comfortable from moment one and helps you understand every aspect of your dental health and full plan for your teeth and gums to be in their best possible condition. The staff is amazing…the office is beautiful and soothing. This IS the place to go if you’re looking for a great dental experience, and ESPECIALLY if you’ve ever been afraid of the dentist. You won’t be after you visit Dr. Phane. ❤

Dr. Phane is the best. I didn’t go to the dentist in years because of horrible experiences. She is kind, knowledgeable, and courteous. My husband and I had to get a few cavities filled and the procedure for both of us was painless. We literally didn’t even feel a poke. She is just great at what she does and I would recommend her to anyone. Her staff is also extremely nice and accommodating!

I am new to St. Petersburg. The outstanding reviews this dental office gets certainly lived up to the praise. I had a perfect visit. They are efficient, friendly, thorough and knowledgeable. I would most certainly recommend Creating Smiles Dental if you are looking to establish a long-term relationship with a dental office in St. Pete.

My husband raved about Dr. Phane and her staff. So much so that I transferred my dental care to her practice. We live about an hour away and make the drive. I hate the dentist but my experience there was amazing. The vibe you get when you walk through the door is like a med spa. Everyone was nice, the place is very clean and their covid protocol is excellent. I highly recommend her.

My family and I have been a patient at this office for over a decade, and i would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone for any and all dental services, from cleaning to crowns and fillings, my experience has always been great. The entire staff is highly competent, professional, courteous and friendly, and the quality of their work has been consistently excellent. They are attentive and thorough and always strive to do what is best for their patients’ health and well being.

I’ve always been a little bit hesitant about dentists. I have to admit it, my past experiences have not been so great at all. Today, that changed!! I had the pleasure of having Tiffany Feger as my hygienist and while I was anxious and nervous she took the time to listen to my concerns and treated me with such respect, professionalism and caring!!!. Dr. Phong K. Phane have the best hands in the world. She fixed my front teeth in no time and was so kind. I definitely have so much respect for this team, from the ladies at the front desk to the professionals that take their time to help you with your dental issues. I would 100% recommend them. Thank you all for such a great experience.

Henry L. from St. Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Creating Smiles Dentistry for over 3 years maybe more. I keep coming back because the staff is nice and the dentists and hygienists are knowledgeable. I have had a crown placed by Dr. Nguyen and had consultations with Dr. Brayer and now Dr. Phane. I’ve improved my oral health which makes the visits easier. Ms. Tiffany usually cleans my teeth. She gets to know her patients and vice versa. I usually plan my appointment on days where I don’t have much to do since it can take a while. The wait time may be long depending on how busy they are. I finished my appointment in an hour and a half today. It goes by fast so you hardly notice the time. I’d recommend coming to Creating Smiles at least for the free consultation.

Dr Phane and staff are amazing… The folks handling the front desk and billing are all polite, kind, treat patients well, friendly, and are great at what they do. Dr Phane and her assistants are all about the patient’s comfort and understanding about what’s being done. Dr Phane prepped two teeth for crowns yesterday…requiring a while in the chair, and a fair amount of Novicaine…but the day after, I feel really good…no soreness…nothing! I highly recommend this dental office and Dr Phane!

I am 72 years old. My Uncle was a dentist, my cousins are dentist, my best friend is a dentist and professor at UNC Chapel Hill. I used the same dentist in Orlando since 1984 as well as the dentist above. Not to go on or bore you, the above should qualify me to give a fair evaluation of a dentist or even more the total practice from (1) the front office (2) hygienist, and (3) Doctors in the practice. If you think this is a qualified person to give an evaluation then——–you must believe my report card regarding this practice. (1) Very qualified professional females (2) the hygienist (A++) gave the detailed and least painful cleaning procedure in 72 years (3) Dr. “PP” (partner in the practice) is incredible and what you wish had been your dentist since you were able to stop crying when Mom said you are going to the dentist. Final observation: This practice is so efficient and professional you surely expect them to give you a “jaw dropping” estimate as they are standing in the door to schedule the next payment for the Mercedes. The prices of the procedures are 100% fair and less than what you would expect from such a highly qualified and professional practice. If you read this and inclined to trust my evaluation for this practise, you better schedule today since the best experience in life is always worth waiting! God bless the “smile” practice! HTW

I’ve moved around a lot, over 20 times actually, and have had a good 20 dentist’s over the years. Have to say – the team at Creating Smiles is incredible! I feel comfortable with them and they always go out of their way to make the experience as best as possible. Even when I was gone for a few years and came back, we picked right up from where we left off like no time had passed. And whoa that infrared scan of my teeth was mind-blowing. Definitely check them out if you’re looking for a friendly and highly professional dentist in St. Pete!

I had the best new patient experience from beginning to end. Lan was exceptional in helping me get booked and working around my fiancé’s busy schedule. Jesseca was highly skilled and did a great job walking me through the cleaning and understanding details of my oral health. Dr. Phane has a friendly and easy going personality and answered all my questions so easily. Lastly checking out was even wonderful. The women at the front desk are so kind and genuine.

Lorraine Paul Dellorto (Source: Facebook)


Somehow my previous post only gave you 4 stars. This was a huge mistake as I wanted to give them 10 stars! I have never enjoyed going to the dentist in the past, but surely do now. Thanks to all for taking such good care of Steve and me. We once asked if we could bring in our dog for her dental care. Lol

Patricia Gruskin (Source: Facebook)


After looking for a dentist almost fo a year a friend recommended me Creating Smiles Dental and let me tell you they really put a smile in my face. First Dr Phong K Phane took the time to listen to my concerns and provided me with different solutions for my dental issues, then I had the pleasure of having Tiffany Feger as my hygienist, I can tell you that she is just the BEST! She was friendly, caring, kind, she treated me with such respect and professionalism but most importantly her gentle touch was a nlessing for me. I definitely have so much respect for this team, from the girls at the front desk to the professionals that take their time to help you with your dental issues. I would 100% recommend them. Thank you to all of you especially to Tiffany for such a great experience.

The customer experience from start to finish is absolutely excellent. Everyone is on the ball, proactive, professional, friendly and great at their job. Jessica was my dental hygienist and I was grateful to have help from Lan and Kyla at the front desk. Everyone went above and beyond to get me contacts I needed for services and provide the best recommendations for my requests. Can’t recommend enough!

Came to Creating Smiles Dental for my dental needs including Invisalign. The staff there along with Dr. Brayer are truly spectacular. I was not easy to work with as I moved half way through my treatment and then got sick, but they made everything work and were very helpful and flexible throughout the entire process. I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a dentist in the St. Petersburg area.

This is hands down the best dental office in St. Pete. Since moving from Tampa, It took me many different dental offices to finally find one that actually met my expectations and actually care for your teeth. My experience there was great. The front desk girls are super sweet and helpful. And I also have to say that Carly is the best hygienist I’ve ever had, I would 100% definitely recommend her to everyone. She is extremely professional, gentle, super talented and shows she truly cares about her patients well being. Overall, I love this place!

Brittany Nicole Spaulding (Source: Facebook)


Fortunately I get the pleasure of working with these incredible people. Some of the most amazing and intelligent people I’ve ever met, to be honest. The teamwork and passion I’ve come to witness is unmeasurable. Before Creating Smiles, I never could’ve imagined being a contributing factor in something so powerful. I’d love to say your coming for just dental work, but in reality your joining us for so much more than that. I’m proud to say I am apart of the Creating Smiles team. An office where every smile gets bigger the minute you walk in the door ��

What else can I say about this dental office other than they are Amazing!! Jessica is my dental hygienist and she is simply the best. Dr. Phane is awesome and the entire staff here at this office is first class. I highly recommend creating smiles dental to anyone that is looking for excellent customer service and great dental work. Thank you all!!!

Dr. Phane and her staff were very inviting. They took the time to explain everything to me in terms that I could understand. They offered several payment options to best suit my resources. I know that no one likes to go to the dentist, but I strongly encourage you to visit Dr. Phane for any and all of your dental needs!

I found this team 2 years ago while I was having a dental emergency. This is the most personable group of dental professionals I’ve ever been too. Most people hate going to the dentist but I think the dental staff actually makes a big difference. These ladies are organized, knowledgeable and accommodating. They take their time and make sure you are taken care of. Dr. Phane is amazing and gentle. When I went to her the first time I was a mess. I needed a root canal (which I’ve never had before) and was in excruciating pain. She took her time and made sure I was comfortable. Since then I’ve become a “regular” in regards to other situations and they’ve always been super sweet and welcoming. They are always on time as well. I have referred a few people to them and they’ve had the same experience.
